Hi I'm looking for some advice on this subject too please. I have been on 15mg of mirtazapine for about 6 weeks. I have recently been to the doctors regarding stool issues and an ache in my back passage. But since Christmas I have had such bad lower back pain. It's Worse in the morning, or if I sit in one position too long. I did a stupid thing and Googled my symptoms, and of course it came back bowel cancer. So now I am worrying out of my mind. I read on the list of side effects for mirtazapine that back pain is common, however I can't find many reports of this.
Also for probably the last week i have been feeling constantly tired, like really drained. It feels like I have lead weights on my arms and legs, everything is I an effort. Which really is unlike me, I'm normally very outgoing and bubbly but I have completely withdrawn into myself. Up until Christmas I was going to the gym 4 times a week but just can't face it at the moment with the back pain and feeling like this.
I guess what I'm asking is, can mirtazapine cause this sort of pain in my lower back, or am I right in worrying about the possibility of colon cancer? I know you cant give me a definitive answer because I suffer with severe health anxiety hence being put on mirtazapine in the first place, which I guess is sadly ironic...
I'm at my wits end and worry myself silly
Thanks in advance, Darren
